  • Profile photo of wandilly


    Greetings everyone,

    I am a member of Marin Professionals Association, which is a non profit community of unemployed professionals sponsored by EDD .Since April I have been searching and testing different formats of WordPress templates but recently in their website showcase, I found an incredible website: “”” that our community would really benefit from .So now I am trying to recreate our “” website with the same capabilities that” has.

    1) I have registered the domain ( and am hosting it with Godaddy,

    2) I uploaded the MUWP 2.4.8a version zip file to my godaddy account and unziped it.

    3) From godaddy I uploaded the BuddyPress zip 1.1.2 version and unziped it as well

    Please bear with me…as I have some questions that may seem silly to you…

    1. my plan was to create each page starting with the home page from a WPMU template and then add the sliding panels and user login capability similar to “””

    but the problem is I don”t see any templates available in WPMU. can you please help me to get started in the right direction?

    first question is, do you have buddypress up and running and does everything work like it’s supposed to (eg. forums/messaging/status updates/etc.)? also, are you on a dedicated server at godaddy?

    “and uploaded to godaddy and then unzipped there which create a buddypress folder in the html directory of godaddy.”

    The plugin folder needs to go in wp-content/plugins/.

    have you tried installing it from the admin area of WordPress? Go to the plugin menu and pick Install New.
